38 years ago, something quite unusual happened in the good city of Des Moines. Ozzy Osbourne ate a bat and one of the more memorable rock stories was born! 

To celebrate Ozzy Osbourne’s last album, we made edible bats. And now anyone can eat these cute black things without fearing to catch the plague or whatever. You’re welcome!

Why did Ozzy eat a bat anyway?

Thousands of terrified parents weren’t particularly keen on that Prince of Darkness nonsense. Black Sabbath‘s music was terribly loud and gloomy for those times, and it only talked about death, sins, and Rock’n’Roll. With the rise of heavy metal as a new genre, the Earth was clearly on the verge of some satanic apocalypse. Ozzy himself was so notoriously crazy and f***ed up, that the band decided to get rid of him eventually. That day of January, 1982, he was on the stage on his own, for the promotion of his second solo album, the unforgettable Diary of a Madman. 

Since Ozzy was known for biting the head of two doves during an executive meeting, fans were quite used to tossing animals on stage, as a joke. That means fake animals. Until that night, when Ozzy picked up what he thought was a rubber bat and bit its head off. It wasn’t rubber. 

Ozzy spent the next week getting rabies shots. Rock n’Roll never really recovered from such a juicy anecdote.
